My cooking while camping days are over, except for Mre's. I'm not much for restaurants while camping either, so I usually get something from a deli or some kind of take out. I always carry nuts, power bars, peanut butter & crackers and a few cans of other favorites just in case like vienna sausage, beanies, ham, tuna.

The Mountain House meals are pretty good in a pinch or when fresh provisions aren't practical. Otherwise, the sky's the limit. I carry a nicely setup kitchen on the bike, and can make most anything in camp that I can at home. You're really only limited by your creativity.

It's made by MSR. It's a very small stove that screws onto the disposable cannisters. It weighs like 2.5oz, and the flame is very adjustable. It comes in a great little hard plastic case. It is very tiny, but the way it folds out it supports a pot well. I almost always have it in my bike. It and one of the small size cannisters fit inside my stainless steel cup with folding handles. It cools very quickly after us as well. It's great for quick stops alongside the road or trail to brew a cup of coffee or tea.

I also have a few different multifuel and white gas stoves. For most bike travel though the pocket rocket has become my favorite. I like that you can use different size cannisters. For longer trips I will usually carry one larger on and one of the very small ones. If the large one runs out I have the small one to use until I can replace the larger one. For short trips, one small one is plenty.

Minute Rice, curry powder (or other seasonings) sealed in Foodsaver bags. Using a JetBoil; add a cup of boiling water right into the bag. Add canned (or now in a zippack) chicken or a can of Dinty Moore stew and enjoy.

JetBoils are nice especially for breakfast; can boil a max of 2 cups of water. Use one for oatmeal and one for coffee

Cook breakfast? Man, it's all I can do to drag my sorry butt out of the tent, boil some water for coffee, brush my teeth and load up the bike. Let alone kicking the other, hungover Bro's out of the sack so we can get riding by 9 am.

Even when I plan to hit cafe's on a trip, I still carry a dehyrated meal with me, just in case. I usually keep some oatmeal for the same reason.

Glad that Stromdog seconded my opinion of the Mountainhouse chilimac. It's my favorite dehydrated dinner. It's part of that new series of meals too, it's very, very compact.

O'Hooligan, I made the grill stand myself.

To me, cooking is part of camping. Up until a year ago I too was doing the minute rice or noodle pack ,hotdogs, packaged meals, Mountain House meals, vienna sausages, ect. But after a trip to the doctors when I was having problems with my vision I got the news that I had become type II diabetic. Yep, was a real shocker and was told I needed to change my way's. Now I have to read lables on everything and watch what I eat. I wondered just how this was going to effect my motorcycling camping trips because I was still going to cook and camp. There were a lot of foods I had to learn to do without but there was plenty I could still eat. Came up with my cooking platform and you know what? Im actually eating better and thats made camping all that much better. And to top it off i've lost 35 lbs from eating better.

Basmatti rice with tahini and salt is one of my staples while traveling. In case you're not familier with tahini, it's simply ground sesame seeds, similar to peanut butter but thinner in texture. Drizzle a little on rice for a great flavor.
It's also good on toast with coffee in the morning.
